Mark R. Bannister
Orchestral & Instrumental Composer
for Film, TV & Theatre

Composer for film and stage
I am a classically trained pianist, who has explored many styles of music and sound composition in a long theatrical career.  I have composed hours of music and created large catalogues of sound effects for stage shows since 1995.  I have also worked with sound on film, composed music for short film projects, and have worked with numerous singer/songwriters arranging and recording demos of their new pop and rock songs, in my home recording studio.

Latest works
I have most recently composed music for the July 2017 Richmond Shakespeare Society's production of The Tempest. Fully scored in Sibelius 6 and recorded on my Roland RD-700 with the Complete Orchestra Expansion card (SRX-06).

If you're currently planning a stage show, or in the process of making a film or TV series, and require an original soundtrack by an experienced and versatile composer, please contact me on the email address below.

Other areas of interest
I am also a versatile actor, having played many characters through Shakespeare to modern day at the Richmond Shakespeare Society in Twickenham.

I can be found at Bandcamp, UKscreen, Score Exchange, and Mandy's International Film and Television Production Directory.

Also see my piano performances on my YouTube channel.
